CAVs are coming; $15 mil will ease the transition

Assistant Professor Raphael Stern is part of the team of researchers awarded $15 million by the U.S. Department of Transportation to help lead the transition to connected and automated vehicles (CAVs). Led by the University of Michigan, the team includes UMN’s Center for Transportation Studies (CTS) and will leverage the experience of the MnCAV Ecosystem, drawing on UMN’s unique strengths to conduct transportation research concerning equity, public perception and trust, the connected environment, vulnerable road users, and cold weather conditions.
